and we are seeing it dwindling. promilitary anniversary it's not just the beam is. they think it was people coming out for almost giving on the
2:03 pm
government here legitimatecy. their idea is that they would show the world that everything was good now in the country, that the rulers, that the legitimate ruleers were here to support them. that you say on the other side of the world, we were seeing people turning out all were left as they got close to tahrir square with the secure forces. there's a death toll. we had at least two people killed and 7 killed in tahrir square it comes across, 28 said and to the latest figures to the
2:04 pm
ministry. has it fell with any points that this would be one of those days that we've seen in the last few years where things have gotten out of control or has it been kept on it today? >> caller: i think it's very clear that they have a number of marches and they were calling for calling for different parts of cairo to move on to the tahrir square. we needed the main marches wob tracked by the security forces and almost when the two are on the square and the main one where you have to go to lots of security checks to get in to the square. and really it's specific to who they are letting in it's further out. i believe the main marches would be stopped.
2:05 pm
there's a heavy security presence. the use of tear glass and the fighting to the air. when you -- but there is a concern to whether people manage to catch the disturbance. that didn't happen but it seems that the security force ohs have really a handle on whether the main people will be coming from but they manage to stop them. we have this -- it has been rising over the last couple of hours but also hearing evidence where people are on the ground and they were seeing local people joan with the security forces. some of them joining in find weapons. some of them just fighting those confrontation to local people. people who lived in the area that the marches were coming through. i think that includeed with the security forces combed this very, very well and any suspicious that these two sides would meet and that it would test it would get as far as
2:06 pm
tahrir square never materialized. >> that's an update this cairo. we thank you for that. we thank you for your time. there was an irony over what's happening today in this is supposed to be great unifying day celebrating a landmark union in the past. a lot are on the twitter feed are complaining that the whole nation was united in the face of an external threat and today the country is the canes vieweded. how does egypt move forward from it. every time would make a turn it can't really and reach another dead end and have to reach back again. >> well, it's a revolutionary
2:07 pm
situation. the order has been disturbed and a new one hasn't congealed. i think the people who are leaving the country now, the army and the civilians are divided over a strategy. some want to marginize the the muslim brotherhood it was a first under ground movement and there are others, i think the prime minister who recognized that it's a large enough group that you can complete i will have the policies that way. but they do i think across the board, the current leaders believe that the brotherhood is sectarian and that it's trying to take over everything unless some block is put there. >> tell me about the military block. i suspect and particularly on a day like this. a good proportion want to
2:08 pm
support the military has been an important institution in the past. i guess the way it's behaveed in the past few years has changed that. this *r there were human rights issues. there was feeling of the brotherhood take over everything among many of the youth and the popular an millions came out against morsi in june.
2:09 pm
what's the revolution good for in 2011 when people should have freedom of assembly. obviously there's been a step back. however, a lot of the egyptians are willing to make allowances because they feel that when the brotherhood was in power, it also interferes with people demonstrating and mobilized to sometimes kill them and prosecute them and so forth. so from the point of view of the young activists who want a new
2:10 pm
order, there's a third square movement and the brotherhood in the military. a lot of the egyptians are with the military on this one. just quickly, before we run out of time, oh how long you think before egypt can try. that's what's going to happen it has to get back to the ballot box and try and get an elected government again. the question is the circumstances. if they try to hold that direction in such a way to exclude a significant proportion of the electric which are the muslim brotherhood supporters. that i have to find a way toeupb
